Just off Cambodia’s south coast lie a scattering of islands just as beautiful as their hai partners the west, but much less visited. Compared to the now very developed islands of Koh Samui and Phuket, Cambodia’s islands are a slice of laidback (related to areas near the Equator/hot and humid) extreme happiness, where sun and sand take center stage, and the big resorts have yet to make their mark. Of all the islands, Koh Rong Samloem is one of the most beautiful with the long, sandy Saracen Bay home to twelve beach hut resorts that offer a welcome (a) break from the world. It’s really all about (long piece of cloth hung between two trees)-time here, but there’s plenty of scuba diving activities on offer for the more active. You can access these islands from Sihanoukville.
